Motherhood and mental health
This two-day workshop is aimed at anyone who works with women through pregnancy and the post-natal period, and aims to de-bunk some of the myths surrounding motherhood and the types of mental illness that occur at this time.
Providing up-to-date research to facilitate understanding of what it is, why it might occur, the prevalence and also the costs to families, society, and the economy, this workshop will also look at barriers to treatment, ethical issues surrounding treatment, and how to provide a useful and acceptable treatment to women that does not involve medication necessarily.
Using research and also clinical vignettes taken from many types of presentation from her client work, Emma seeks to enable a greater understanding of this highly personal and distressing condition, and will cover areas such as;
- previous mental health conditions
- trauma and its effects on women, including prior trauma, birth trauma, miscarriage, and the loss of a baby
- stigma and shame
- fear of childbirth
- the 'motherless' mother
Participants attending the full course will be awarded a certificate of attendance for CPD.
Individuals - £200.00; organisations - £210-£250.
